The U.S. Commerce Department has organized an Aerospace Supplier Development Mission to China.
The Mission is scheduled for November 7-17, 2010, and the government has announced that there are still spaces available. Several MAPRPA members have told us that they are participating.
China’s aerospace sector ranks among the world’s most dynamic, going far beyond the country’s massive investment in aircraft (4,000 by 2025). Chinese aerospace companies have rapidly developed into serious players in the industry’s global value chain, and they are in a greater position than ever to frequently make their own sourcing decisions, participate as “risk sharing partners” in new airframe and engine development programs, and taking on the role of first-tier suppliers on Chinese programs.
The primary objectives of the Aerospace Supplier Development Mission to China are:
- To introduce U.S. companies to Chinese joint venture groups and Western OEMs operating in China;
- To explore supplier opportunities on current/future aerospace projects in China, and;
- To participate in Airshow China in Zhuhai
- November 7-9/ Shanghai
- November 9-11/ Beijing
- November 11-14/ Xi’an
- November 14-15/ Guangzhou
- November 15-17/ Zhuhai
This is a great opportunity to meet directly with officials from Chinese aerospace companies and the Chinese government.
